Dubai: Virat played an unbeaten innings of 122 runs off 61 balls against Afghanistan (IND vs AFG) in the Super Four of the Asia Cup (Asia Cup 2022). His innings consisted of 12 fours and six sixes. After 1021 days, the Indian star hit a hundred in international cricket. Kohli’s century sent millions of his fans into a frenzy. Former teammates like Kevin Pietersen, AB de Villiers also congratulated Kohli. Pakistani stars are not left out in this list.
Pray for Kohli
Kohli was not less criticized for not scoring a hundred for a long time. Some even questioned his place in the Indian XI. But in addition to criticism, many people stood by him. Pakistan captain Babar Azmai posted on social media in support of Kohli. Shaheen Afridi also told Virat Kohli that he was praying for his return to form when the two teams met for a practice session ahead of the India-Pakistan group stage match. Kohli has finally returned to form. Pakistani star Hassan Ali (Hassan Ali), Mohammad Amir (Mohammad Amir) are excited about his century.
Kudos to Kohli
After Kohli’s century, Hasan Ali expressed his excitement on social media and wrote, ‘Virat Kohli is back (in form).’ Another Pakistani star Mohammad Amir said, “Finally the wait is over, King Kohli scored a great century.” Aamir and Kohli’s relationship is certainly not new. Earlier, Virat had gifted his bat to Aamir. All in all, one thing is clear. The entire cricket world is excited about Virat’s return to form and century.
Kohli thanked his wife Anushka after scoring a century. He said, ‘I know that there was a lot of discussion about me in the outside world. I kiss my ring (after Shatran). I am standing here today. The real credit behind him is one person. That is Anushka. I would like to dedicate this centenary to him and our little girl Bhamika. I always talked to Anushka and she supported me. So back on the field I didn’t chase runs desperately. This six week break helped me a lot. I realized just how tired I was. After the break I am enjoying my game again.’
